Des Moines Sertoma Club keeps it warm for December 2010

While the calendar says the year is coming to an end, Sertoma rolls on!

The Des Moines Sertoma Club will have one regular lunch meeting this month. On December 7 we will host Cherie Burns, Director of Development & Community Relations for Childserve. Our club has worked a lot with Childserve and its predecessors over the years, and it’s always amazing to hear the incredible work Childserve does in Cenral Iowa. Remember, this meeting will be at 801 Grand on the 41st floor, in their Grill room.

Our annual Christmas lunch will be December 14 on the 40th floor at 801 Grand. This is always a great event, featuring our Service to Mankind award and the Ruby Van Meter Singers. Because the Des Moines Club is closing its 801 Grand location at year-end, this will be our last event at the top of Des Moines’ tallest building. See you there! Please get your reservations to Minda Barr (245-5283) as soon as possible.

The Club continues its tradition of ringing bells for the Salvation Army the day before our Christmas lunch. Sign up with Oliver Knuth.

The Des Moines Sertoma Club wishes you joyful holidays and invites you to join us in our mission of Service to Mankind!

January 2011: the start of a great year to be a Sertoman!

Of course, every year is a great year to be part of Sertoma! The Des Moines Club looks forward to again promoting hearing health and our local mission at the Ruby Van Meter School for special-needs kids. Of course, we also have great times and great speakers at our regular lunch meetings, and January 2011 will be no exception.

We will meet in the "Board Room" of the Des Moines Club on the 33rd floor of Ruan Center (7th and Grand) in January.

Our first meeting in 2011 is January 4, when the club welcomes an advocate for our hearing and speech service mission: Martha Meyer of the Central Iowa Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America. The HLAA describes its mission as " to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss by providing information, education, support and advocacy."

201101dms1Ron Sorensen, director of low-power radio station KFMG-LP, visits us on January 18. Ron owned KFMG/KDMG, a full-power station at 103.3 FM. Years after selling that station he re-entered the radio game with the first low-power entry in the Des Moines market. With fresh legislation to encourage low-power stations just enacted, this will be an interesting and timely session.


201101dms-2Our January evening outing takes us to Knapp Center January 25 to see the Drake Bulldogs Men's Basketball team square off against Missouri State. Tip-off is at 7:05. Club members should let Joe Kristan know if they need tickets.


Great speakers, great outings, and service to the community -- don't miss another day of it. Join Sertoma!
